I've just tried with a non-existant command, and...
wicd_1.5.4-1_all.deb wicd_1.5.4-1.dsc wicd_1.5.4-1_i386.upload
wicd_1.5.4-1.diff.gz wicd_1.5.4-1_i386.changes wicd_1.5.4.orig.tar.gz
$ foobar <TAB>
$ foobar wicd_1.5.4
it seems working, really.
However, with existing commands it does not work, as you reported. I'll take a
look at it, :)
